Todd Wong (CUPE 391 Vancouver Library Workers) with Carole James, NDP leader, and Judy Darcy – president of HEU (Hospital Employees Union).
The Canadian Labour Congress has organized Winter School for 32 years at Harrsion Hot Springs Resort. This was my first time attending, as I am still on my first year being on the executive of CUPE 391 Vancouver Library Workers, as a member-at-large.
I was enrolled in the course, “Unions in the Community.” Even though I am recognized by many people as a community leader, and community organizer, I learned many things about community organizing. I was amazed at the depth and involvement of my class mates in their communities and union locals.
On Monday, the first day of classes began. The evening featured a speech by BC NDP leader, Carole James.
Carole talked with Fred Kay, a retired long shore man, and veteran of the CLC Winter School.
It's always a pleasure to catch up with Jenny Kwan, MLA for Vancouver Mount Pleasant.
